Creston Friends of Cinema offering Angels’ Share, a comedy about planned whisky heist

Web Lead

A Scottish comedy-drama is next up on the Friends of the Cinema list of movie presentations at Prince Charles Theatre. The Angels’ Share, directed by Ken Loach, is a quirky tale of a small-time criminal who seeks redemption through one more crime.

Robbie stumbles into the world of scotch whisky (angels’ share is the term used to describe the loss of whisky in a barrel by evaporation) by accident, and is soon scheming with his community service pals to steal a rare and valuable barrel of whisky.

Will the likable Robbie succeed with his plan? Will it lead to a new start and brighter future?

Released last summer, The Angels’ Share has brought in almost $7 million at the box office as audiences have taken to this story of ordinary people who are one mistake away from fortune or failure.

The Angel’s Share will be screened at 7:30 p.m. April 15. Tickets are available at the door.

Net proceeds from Friends of the Cinema presentations go to community non-profits such as Friends of the Library and the Creston Community Auditorium Society.
